Abstract

This article compares the earliest "ethnographic" accounts of Japan printed in France: canon law professor Jean Macer's 1555 history of the Indies, which both replicates and expurgates Postel's heterodox 1552-1553 Merveilles du monde, which itself translates and interprets the first Jesuit reports sent to Rome by Francis Xavier.
